Feeling Through the Pandemic Episode 179, April 12, 2020
Kevin Fitzmaurice is an extraordinary regular guy who is out to inspire the world by sharing his life long struggle with depression and anxiety. I asked him to return to Real Men Feel to talk about dealing with all the emotions that might rise up at this crazy time.
“I think this is a great challenge for us. What do we want to be when we get out of this?” ~ Kevin Fitzmaurice
